In our submission to the modernisation of the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Act, Jesuit Social Services was broadly supportive of the recommendations put forward in the Discussion Paper, as we believe they will offer the people we work with and others in their situation, protections from various forms of discrimination and vilification.
In particular Jesuit Social Services welcomed the introduction of vilification laws, with the NT currently being the only jurisdiction in Australia not to have any in place, as well as the introduction of the representative complaints model.
We also noted that in introducing these important reforms, it is essential that adequate resources are also provided to the Anti-Discrimination Commission to cater for a potential increase in complaints.
